Mahama must retract his 'Do or Die' comment - Netizens

Ghanaians on social media have reacted to former President Mahama's comment during his Thank You tour. former President Mahama on his thank-you tour used the term 'Do or die' during an interview on a Radio Station.

Social media users have largely opposed Mahama's pronouncement that the 2024 elections will be a 'do or die' affair at the polling station. According to former president Mahama in an interview on Akina Fm in the Bonoo Region,

"There is a saying that you take lessons from whatever happens. We have learnt our lessons from the 2020 polls. The 2024 elections will be won or lost at the polling station. It will be ‘do-or-die’ at the polling stations, I am not saying all-die-be-die. "

“The right thing must be done during the polls. In 2024, we will win the elections at the polling station and won’t wait for collation centre results nor petition the Supreme Court."

“There at the collation centers and polling stations, we will make sure that everything is free, transparent, and fair. We don’t want to cheat them and we don’t want to be cheated. Let the vote be clean and whatever is on the hearts of voters be done.”

These comments attracted condemnation as many social media users interpret the term as violent or hate speech, and as a result, will signal intimidation to 2024 general elections.

Below are the views expressed by netizens


" It beats understanding how Mr. Mahama's "Thank You Tour" has degenerated into a platform for reckless commentary. How does a former President & former ECOWAS chair threaten electoral violence while belittling the ability of laws and the Supreme Courts to deliver justice?"

he continued'

"Mr. Mahama must own up to his irresponsible statements and offer an unqualified apology to the people of Ghana: the people he hopes to lead."


"It won't be bad if Farida and Sharaf will be at the polling station doing their father's do or die bidding."
